Abstract: | The moment of (p,q)-order, mp,q(C), of a circle C given by (x-a)2 + (y-b)2 ≤ r2, is defined to be (Formula Presented). It is naturally to c assume that the discrete moments dmp,q(C), defined as (Formula Presented) can be a good approximation for mp,q(C). This paper gives an answer what is the order of magnitude for the difference between a real moment mp,q(C) and its approximation dmp,q(C), calculated from the corresponding digital picture. Namely, we estimate (Formula Presented) in function of the size of the considered circle C and its center position if p and q are assumed to be integers. These differences are upper bounded with (Formula Presented), where e is an arbitrary small positive number. The established upper bound can be understood as very sharp. The result has a practical importance, especially in the area of image processing and pattern recognition, because it shows what the picture resolution should be used in order to obtain a required precision in the parameter estimation from the digital data taken from the corresponded binary picture. |
